Most dangerous hardware in my collection:

DEC RA82 Hard Drive - With that big AC motor and pully, I'm sure it would
take your arm off if you ventured inside.

Quadex Q5000 Mini - Even grounded properly, touching the sides gives you a
nasty shock. Fortunately you don't have
 to touch it much once it's running.

HP 7XXX plotter - gave me a nasty papercut once while I prematurely grabbed
at it's output.
